Thursday Thirteen

No comments:
The Thursday 13 is a weekly meme with a simple theme: each Thursday you blog a list of 13 things. What kind of things? Any kind! Just come up with a list theme and run with it. One week you may list “13 things on my mind” and maybe the next week you’d list “my top 13 favorite movies”.  Back in early 2007, Janet came up with the idea of going through the alphabet;  “13 Things I Love that begin with the letter A”, etc.  That gives you 26 weeks of ideas! Each new 13 will be posted at approximately 8PM EST every Wednesday evening.

Federal Agencies

No comments:
Almost 150 years ago, President Lincoln found it necessary to hire a private investigator - Alan Pinkerton - for protection. And that was the beginning of the Secret Service. Since that time, federal police authority has grown in depth, scope, and to a large number of multi-letter agencies - CID, OSI, NIS, FBI, CIA, INS, IRS, DEA, BATF, etc. Now we have the “Federal Air Transportation Airport Security Service.”

Wordless Wednesday

No comments:
Wordless Wednesday (WW) is a visual blogosphere phenomenon. Whereas blogs (web journals) are primarily about "words" bloggers love to dress their journal entries with imagery. WW is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words.

The Lesson...

No comments:
A Lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Sheriff's Deputy. He thinks that he is smarter than the Deputy because he is sure that he has a better education. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the deputy's expense...

Deputy says, "License and registration, please."

Link Love Tag

No comments:
Amanda of Amanda tagged me for the link love meme. Here's how it goes:

Rule #1: Copy all the links below and replace a single link under the appropriate letter of the alphabet. If your domain name, or even the title of your blog, starts with an “A,” you’d replace the link under that letter and put the replaced link at the bottom.

The Guide Dog

No comments:
A blind man is walking down the street with his guide dog one day. They come to a busy intersection, and the dog, ignoring the high volume of traffic zooming by on the street, leads the blind man right out into the thick of traffic. This is followed by the screech of tires and horns blaring as panicked drivers try desperately not to run the pair down.

Karma...

No comments:
A man walked up to a farmer's house, and knocked on the door. When the farmer's wife opened the door, the man asked if she knew how to have sex. Not amused, she slammed the door.

Again, the man knocked, and again, he asked the same question. Again, she slammed the door and screamed, "Get the hell away!"

A Wonderful Gesture...

No comments:
As most of you know I'm in the middle of switching from Earthlink to AT&T. It's been stressful to say the least. You have to change your address in a million different places.

Well, today I got a wonderful surprise from Mo (Morgen) of It's A Blog Eat Blog World, in my email. This beautiful Iris made me stop and appreciate all the many friendships I have throughout cyberspace. What I'm trying to say is...Mo made my day. Thanks Mo.

I'm Back!!!

No comments:
Well, it's been a very different week. Last Friday there was a storm that blew through California and it was a good one. We made it through the day without losing power and we were very thankful for that.

We had company for dinner and I left the computer and enjoyed my evening. Our company left and then I came back into my office to see that I no longer had a DSL connection.

When was the last time you received a surprise in the mail, and what was it?

Don't think I've ever received a good surprise by mail. A bad one was a recent bill that was incorrect and it was huge. Very bad surprise.

Wrong Number

No comments:
Leola Starling of Ribrock, Tenn., had a serious telephone problem. But unlike most people she did something about it.

The brand-new $10 million Ribrock Plaza Motel opened nearby and had acquired almost the same telephone number as Leola.
